“It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.” – Charles M. Province
One slight correction, Mr. Province, I appreciate the enthusiasm for the soldier and his and her role in keeping our precious freedoms for all of us. But, the rest of the military deserves this accolade as well. Right?
